2G / GSM

( Duration: 1 Day )

The basic aim of 2G/GSM training course is to provide an overview of the telecom network architecture (OSS and FCAPS) and 2G network, the significance and functionality of the 2G core and radio network elements, call setup and termination and handover techniques.

The Global System for Mobile communications (GSM) is a well established technology providing a near global standard for a second generation cellular telecommunication system. The air interface is a key area of standardization that permits global compatibility. The capabilities and features available on the air interface have greatly increased since the technology first appeared.

By attending 2G/GSM workshop, Participants will learn to:

  • State the key radio performance and functional capability requirements of a GSM mobile station
  • Describe the radio spectrum bands and radio channel organization for GSM
  • Explain how Gaussian Minimum Shift Keying (GMSK) modulation operates and relate this to the radio channel characteristics
  • Describe the TDMA slot, multiframe, superframe and hyperframe structures
  • List the burst structures used in GSM and explain their structuresand their application
  • Identify and describe physical layer changes required for the support of the General Packet Radio
  • Service (GPRS) and Enhanced Data Rates for Global Evolution (EDGE)
  • List and relate the logical channels to air interface signaling flows and traffic flows
  • State the functions of Link Access Protocol on the Dm Channel (LAPDm) and describe the frame structures used in logical channels
  • Describe layer 3 signaling flows for call control and mobility management
  • Describe layer 3 signaling flows for call control and mobility management

In order to achieve the maximum benefit from this workshop, it is recommended that Participants are familiar with the architecture and general operation of a GSM network. This is best obtained by attending our GSM System Engineering course.
